Spotted during a stay on Islay’s neighbour Colonsay, a Bumblebee busy on the flower of a Thistle. Picture courtesy of my sister Imke.
A view during a walk around the north of Islay, from Gortantaoid all the way along the coast to Bunnahabhain. A burn (not sure of its name) flowing through a deep gully just south of Mala Bholsa (in the background on the right). Colonsay visible on the horizon.
The MV Eilean Dhiura crossing from Islay to Jura on a very clear April afternoon in 2015. In the middle distance the small lighthouse at Carragh an t-Sruith on Jura. Behind it the north of Colonsay and in the far distance the Isle of Mull with Ben More (the only island Munro outside of the Isle of Skye).
